Facelift for Black Stump Park


Youngsters learning road rules will benefit from the recent facelift of Black Stump Park on the Esplanade at Point Vernon.

As part of the $52,000 facelift new play equipment has been installed that will cater to young children from one to 13 years of age.

“Youngsters using the park will also be able to learn about road rules,” Cr David Lewis said.

“The existing figure of eight concrete pathway within the park has been renovated and converted into a miniature roadway, completed with line marking, crossings and painted signage.

“They will be able to learn rudimentary road rules as they ride their scooters or bikes around the circuit.

“It is already popular with kindergarten kids.”

 Two small empty softfall areas were also removed and turfed to increase green space or make room for further playground equipment to be provided in future budgets.

Drainage was also improved to eliminate ponding within the park.
